Trump Sacks Reince Priebus

Postby toucana on July 28th, 2017, 6:49 pm 

President Trump has sacked his Chief of Staff Reince Priebus and replaced him with General John F. Kelley

http://edition.cnn.com/2017/07/28/politics/john-kelly-chief-of-staff/index.html

The replacement of Priebus by Kelly who was previously the Secretary of Homeland Security was announced in a Tweet - (some sources have told CNN that Reince Priebus resigned in private on Thursday evening).

The removal of Reince Priebus as Chief of Staff just a week after Sean Spicer resigned in protest at the appointment of Anthony Scaramucci as Trump's new Communications Director, is likely to lead to a further wave of resignations of other WH staff with loyalties to the wider GOP. Some are predicting a mass walk-out.

Gen. John F. Kelley, a former Marine Corps General who now becomes the Chief of Staff, has had the shortest tenancy as Secretary of Homeland Security in the history of that office.

Reince Priebus who is now the shortest serving non-interim Chief of Staff at the WH, had been blamed for failing to control an almost endless flow of leaks, and for failing to manage the administration's legislative program more effectively.

meanwhile sacrocuahiowahteverjerk wife just filed for divorce.

What a horrible soap opera reality TV show. His family and friends are just going to get rich off of all this drama BS. Can't wait for people to get so fed up with wasting our tax dollars and time embarrassing the country that this is forced to end.

A government of rubbish

Looks like she cited his political ambitions as the main cause of divorce filing. So Scaramouche will be doing the fandango by himself. Ex's thunderbolt and lightning, very very frightening. Galileo!

And Huckabee wants to repeal the 17th amendment after the Skinny Repeal got smacked down.

What a freakshow.

MSNBC commentator Lawrence O'Donnell has pointed out on Wolf Blitzer's CNN segment last night that Anthony Scaramucci is not yet on the WH payroll. Under government finance rules, Scaramucci can't officially start being paid until 15 August. He is currently going into the WH on a visitor's pass each day.

It remains open to some doubt as to whether old 'Scarface' Minnie-the-Moocher will last long enough in his new job to pick up his first salary check. His deranged and obscene phone call to New Yorker magazine journalist Ryan Lizza disclosed a number of interesting details about the psychological state and acrobatic abilities of his new colleagues. Scaramucci had phoned Lizza up in a rage to demand who had leaked his financial disclosure document (which was a public document to start with), and apparently failed to realise that he was speaking to Lizza on record.

The Raw Story news website has cited Washington Post sources that claim Trump originally asked Gen. Kelly to take over as Chief of Staff back in May, but Kelly refused multiple times to do so. The same story relates how President Trump once summoned his hapless Chief of Staff Reince Priebus, and ordered him to kill a fly that was distracting him.

“Priebus’ final departure was a humiliating coda for what had been a largely demeaning tenure during which he endured regular belittling from rival advisers — and even, at times, the president himself,” The Post reports. “His exit was described by one Republican strategist as ‘the red wedding,’ a reference to a mass-murder blood bath episode of HBO’s ‘Game of Thrones.'”
